About The Journal

One of the most critical, daunting and devastating problems of the 21st century is the growing trend of misinformation and disinformation on virtually every aspect of contemporary life and society. This is more so with the advancement of modern information technology and the burgeoning of social media. The crises of misinformation, disinformation and poor information analyses based on sentiments, parochial interests and pure mischief have been fuelled, often intentionally and unintentionally, by people and groups who profess to be merchants of the media and non-media outfits alike. With the development and direction of information technology and the superfluity of access in the global information highway, online and offline, there is now more than ever, the pressing need for reliable and trusted sources of information and information analyses that provide “truthful” and verifiable information, based on scientific and empirical research, critical reasoning, objective analysis, and professional journalistic conduct. This is the gap that The Journal seeks to fill, thus promoting positive change in the trend of 21st century media. The Journal is a contemporary media outfit which is dedicated to providing objective and professional analyses of national and international news, ideas, philosophies, trends, and events, with a dedicated and diverse team of professional, vastly experienced and knowledgeable editorial collective.
